  • SUStAINAbILItYCONSCIOUS

    WeAvING A SUStAINAbLe FUtUReThe international business climate is driving brands and retailers in the textile and footwear industries to be more transparent and to consider the full impact of their activities and policies on one of the worlds most diverse global supply chain. Pressure is being exerted from the increase in new government regulations on major issues such as climate change, pollution, product safety and health risks. Stakeholders, including individual consumers, have high expectations and want to purchase safer products as well as having a more holistic approach to environmental benefits that goes beyond simply compliance with regulations.

    As a response to the effects of global warming and the increase in pressure for corporate social responsibility, establishing corporate sustainability programs and publishing corporate social / sustainability reports are currently an essential business strategy. Companies are expecting to turn their constraints into opportunities for enabling innovation, reducing cost, improving performance and creating competitive advantages. The transparency and validity of the information produced for the public domain can be enhanced by providing supporting evidence and scientific proof. Improvements can also be reflected in corporate image as management effectiveness is increased alongside the validity of information. The result will be that stakeholders will gain more trust in your company and operations.

    In order to assist brands and retailers to meet the challenges ahead, SGS offers a full spectrum of one-stop services for improving sustainability at various points in the supply chain, from the corporate level, through manufacturing to finished products and packaging.

    Our experienced and knowledgeable experts in the textile and footwear fields can be your best and trusted partner to help you implement sustainability programs that enable you to demonstrate high levels of credibility and achieve your corporate commitment.
